Life Mirrors our Reality

So much is going on right now with this financial crisis that I imagine we are all going through similar feelings of can we trust government, can we trust the financial system, can we trust our leaders, can we trust the value of the dollar, who can we trust?

We cannot ignore the fact that our current global economy is definitely a mirror of our world and our society as it is today and on a more individual level who we are as individuals and what our compass in life has become.

While what is happening on a global level has affected me to some degree in that my retirement accounts have gone down, what has affected me more is the stark truth of confronting my own reality of spending money and not having enough saved .Yes I am like the many thousands of people out there that has spent more than saved and refinanced my home to pay off credit card debt. I am like many of the thousands who live pay check to paycheck. We can all be asking ourselves “how did we get to this point?” I find it hard to believe that all these banking executives and government leaders could dare to even ask themselves this question. Now really it is like me asking myself how I got myself into this situation. Well it becomes as my kids would say “DA!” Well for those of you who don’t know what this means in teenage verbology this means it’s pretty obvious. I could choose to ignore the signs of my behavior and blame someone or something else. What would I gain from this but only to continue to delude myself. But isn’t that what we do so easily with ourselves and the dark side of our personalities and ego that we are afraid to confront or better yet to muster up the courage to change our behavior.

What is our direction what has our direction been? What has our compass been pointing to? I myself have had to evaluate what my compass has been directed at and it has not been due north straight ahead. There have been times that I felt my ship at sea but aimlessly drifting although knowing that I was in the ocean and moving some how to some direction but the compass was not programmed and a map clearly charted. This is where we have been as a nation and as a people individually. There was a point in my life not too long ago as early as these past few months that I have hid this from the outside world, from others perhaps in the dire hope that I could delude myself. Well I have finally come to realize that I am not alone. There are many of you in the same ship out there.

I guess what it all boils down to is that when we realize and finally wake up that this ship is not really going anywhere we can get off and take another course. We can get on board another ship whose compass and orientation is charted in the right direction. Do I like where my life is at the present moment? Do you? What can I do to change that? What course of action can I take? These are the hard reality questions that we must be asking ourselves, that I must be asking myself and have needed to face head on heavily this week.

Where do we go from here? It is up to us, it is up to me to decide what I want my reality to be. We are in charge. Too often we have been told and indoctrinated that we are not capable, we must have someone do it for us. If you read material that deals with the quantum physics of thought you will see that this is not something new, the concept that our thoughts and feelings have a great deal to do with our reality has been around for centuries. Are we that dense as a Nation as a species that we do not utilize these principles? Where would we be today if we did? Imagine if for a brief moment what that would mean for all of us as a Country, as a Planet as an individual?

Ahh the great mirror, yes no matter how we try to change and distort things the mirror does not lie. We must look at the truth, it is staring us right back in the face.
